Diner Reviews
  • "We went to celebrate a friends birthday and it was great. Everything was perfect and exceeded our expectations. I will definitely make it a point go again next time I'm in Charlotte."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The restaurant was so nice. The bar was packed and the outdoor lounge area was super cool. The food was good, but we had to send our drinks back to the bar a couple times. I say go!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "We enjoyed our first visit to Fahrenheit, as the service was great, the food was good for the most part, although one of our group was disappointed with the short rib dish. We had a nice view although we had to eat much earlier than we wanted, as there were only 5;15 reservations available through Open Table. We were then disappointed to see that there were many unoccupied tables when we left around 7:15. Had tried to call the rest. 2 times to make reservations on our own, but no one answered the phone."

  • "I would recommend this restaurant for several reasons. The view from the top is most enjoyable. Great panoramic shot of Charlotte. Food very good, healthy and fresh. Makes of the best Manhattans in town!"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "I made my reservation with a note that my guest had a low sodium diet. The menu is freshly prepared entrees so this should not have been a problem. The chef said he did not make modifications so he would only modify a couple of items despite the medically prescribed diet. The food came out covered in salt. We could see the salt crystals from across the room. I sent the food back and saw a chef cut off a part of the food to taste it. When it came back it was obvious the asparagus was rinsed under water and a big portion of the meat was cut off. Considering the amount of salt would have put my guest in the hospital, we left. The manager said he was sorry but wasn't sincere. He didn't even apologize when he bumped into me as I was leaving."

  • "This place offers one of the best views of Uptown Charlotte."

  • "We have been to Fahrenheit twice now. This time we took our kids and had a fabulous time. Our waiter was great! He met all off needs and went above to make sure we were satisfied."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We went to Fahrenheit for a late dinner on a Friday night. The restaurant has the best view of downtown Charlotte adding to the ambiance. However, it was a little loud in the dining area. The food was presented well and tasty. Our servicer was very knowledgeable about the specials and how the food was prepared. I would definitely recommend Fahrenheit as a great place for date night."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Given the location and marketing, I was disappointed that the prime location is wasted. The interior ceiling is too low (as low as a typical hotel room/condo apt) hence the noise level was amplified. The food was sub optimal. Valet parking at most restaurants uptown is free but at Fahrenheit, a discount of a mere $3 was given."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "This restaurant was recommended by friends so we gave it a try. I'm not sure Fahrenheit knows what it wants to be. The menu was interesting and prices pretty steep, but repeated prompts by the server to "get some appetizers going" made it feel like an Applebee's. Entrees came out early – this and other issues made it clear the kitchen was not coordinated with the servers. Entrées were over sauced and salty. The server was cheerful, efficient and did her best. The view was great and it was a good crowd. I'll go back for drinks but not dinner."

  • "I really wanted to like Fahrenheit, but sadly it was a miss. Even with 8pm reservations on a Weds we were a good 25 minutes late sitting down. I was willing to look past this as there is a nice outdoor area with views of the skyline but the rectangular fire pits that flank both sides of the outdoor space were on despite it being in the high 80s outside and it was HOT out there! Once we were seated inside, there was absolutely no AC running despite the large number of people inside the restaurant. The food was alright but my kale salad tasted dry and my scallop entree included three pieces of actual scallops and was covered in a very SALTY cauliflower cream sauce. It was kind of gross. Sorry guys... this place is just not cutting it."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "As I looked around the room at the gorgeous skyline view and the massive number of people dining at Fahrenheit, I thought to myself "Is this really a Wednesday night in Charlotte NC?" It has a London or NYC ambiance. The food was 5 star and better than some meals that I have had in NYC, London and Paris. Service was professional and fun."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "View and decor were excellent BUT the noise level surpassed any restaurant in which we have ever dined. Conversation was impossible without shouting. The $32 lobster mac and cheese that was to have "chunks of lobster" had not one single visible piece of lobster in it. Grated pieces added flavor to what was essentially a bowl of pasta. Parking was $7 + $3 to valet even after a $190 diner tab. Have cocktails on the terrace for the view and the quiet is our recommendation."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Wonderful view, and a killer atmosphere in the bar area when they open all the doors to the patio. The food I felt was a little lacking. I had the Halibut and it was overdone, and lacked flavor. Chorizo wrapped dates appetizer is excellent. Kale salad was also wonderful...it's huge so you may want to split it. Overall the atmosphere/view makes up for what the food lacks."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "We expected a nice fine dining experience but quickly realized that is not what this restaurant is. The hostess seemed bothered to have to seat us and the food was just ok to not very good. It sounded good on the menu but just didn't follow through on the plate. The patrons were dressed in ripped jeans and some women were in club type wear so that distracted from the ambiance as well as the very loud probably inebriated groups that sang Happy Birthday at least 4 times during our meal. Everything from the patrons to the food seemed like a mid level chain restaurant which might have been ok if the prices were in line with the quality of the experience. Our server was very nice and efficient but there is a lot of room for improvement here."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Regarding Fahrenheit-Charlotte restaurant... I would say avoid it. The view is alright, if you don't mind the kids playing in the hotel pool right to your left. The food is way over priced and low quality. $40 for a bowl of 50 cent Ramen noodles with crab meat dropped in. I give it maybe 2 stars... The spring rolls were gross. For a fancy evening celebrating a special event, go to Bentley's"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Great food, drinks, service, view of the city... Thrilled to have something like this in Charlotte. Red Fish was amazing, as well as Lobster Mac and Cheese, Calamari...everything we ordered was great! If you didn't like this place, there is something wrong with you."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Great place with awesome bar and balcony. Excellent view of Charlotte that you cannot get anywhere else. Food was great with fun unique dishes. Pricey but well worth it!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Like some of the other reviews...food, view and scene are awesome. Great to have in Charlotte. For me, tho, at this price point, the service should fall nothing short of perfect. You pay as much for service as you do the food. Let me say that the waiter was awesome. My concern is with the restaurant policy on dishes that come out wrong. The $43 steak was way underdone. No problem sending it back. Same piece of meat was reheated and cooked fine for round 2. At this high price, I would have expected a manager's visit or something while the rest of my party enjoyed their dishes. Nothing was done and that leaves a question on how much my business is valued. We will likely return for apps, view and a drink, but not dinner."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Food was nothing to talk about. The view is great! Def a place to get a drink outside but don't waste your money on the food. They got our order wrong and gave attitude when we wanted it corrected. We had a bartender for a server and I think the customer service is not good at all! Save your money and go to blt steak!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The view, the food, and our server Casey were all amazing. I will come back here again."

  • "Great evening- wonderful and engaging bartenders. Knowledgeable and attentive wait staff. Management interaaction was pleasant. Food was splendid."

  • "Went for a cebration dinner, 5 of us. Each enjoyed every minute. Be sure to check out their specialty drink menu. Food and staff were well above expectations!!!"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Food was superb but there is a need for more options. This goes for cocktails also that are listed on the menu Very noisy so romance should not be the reason to visit this location. Service is great."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Food is outstanding, but I was exhausted from shouting to the people in my party of 5 as well as trying to hear what was being said. It is such a shame because the food really is spectacular."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "My fiancé and I visited Fahrenheit on Wednesday to give it a try. Needless to say we were not impressed. The average entree will cost you about $35, which is fine if the food is good. In this case it was not. Very salty! On a good note the view as well as the outdoor area is fantastic. The drinks as well as the wine menu are priced reasonably. That in mind I would revisit this place for after work drinks but that's about it. If you're looking for an upscale dinner you're best bet is to try one of the many other places in uptown Charlotte."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Took my husband here for his birthday and we fell in love with the restuarant. Great atmosphere inside and out especially when dusk came. It was beautiful outside with the fire box on (not really a fire pit). Food was good portions and excellent quality. Will be returning again soon!"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Overall from start to finish we had good sevice and attention from the hostess and waitress. Food was enjoyed by all, particularly the potato encrusted grouper special. The view of Charlotte cannot be beat. However range noise level is quite high to the point we were having to lean next to one another to talk. Had a headache by the time we left. But would go back to show off that view but with earplugs."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our evening and the view was great. This is definitely a spot to entertain or for special occasions."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Corey was an exceptional server. Lynn is a very welcoming and hospitable manager. Food was amazing-especially the chicken wings. Best wings Ive ever had which is profound for I do not like chicken wings. Ill only eat them there. Kobe was well flavored. Music was a bit loud. Look forward to dining here again soon."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "From the moment we walked in, we knew it was going to be the evening we were looking for. We were welcomed by a professional staff and shown to our table, away from the main part of the restaurant as I'd requested, since we were celebrating our anniversary. The main part is louder, and had we been dining for no occasion or with friends, would have been fun. Our waiter was wonderful, gave us time to look over the menu, and when we asked, gave us fabulous suggestions. We NEVER would have ordered the appetizer he suggested, but we followed his suggestion and thoroughly enjoyed the dates. The specialty drinks are a must have, they are creative and crazy delicious, as were our salads, entrees and desserts. I could go on-Fahrenheit is a gem."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Food was horrible! It was Restaurant Week and we didn't order from the restaurant week menu but the "regular" menu instead; mashed potatoes were cold, appetizers which were supposed to be Spring Rolls were horrible; fried rice awful; lobster tail - the worse. 3 scallops for $30??? For the $80 bill the best thing about the meal was the Mojito and the view - otherwise don't waste your time - especially if you're hungry"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Fahrenheit in April and it was great. This time just ok. Service was lacking, meal was average and the hostess was pretty snotty. I did all I could not to say "rude and stupid, is no way to go through life." She paged us twice and called once to let us know our table was ready AFTER she already sat us. Ordered dessert which didn't come for several minutes. He said it would be another 2 minutes. 5 minutes later he returned to tell us that they were out of ice cream which goes with the bread and butter cake. He said it would take approx 10 min to get more. After waiting now about 1/2 hr, we asked for our check and pd. Upon leaving (much less than 10 min) we passed a waiter delivering two bread and butter cakes W/ ICE CREAM to another table!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Fahrenheit definitely feels like a hotel restaurant once you move out of the bar area. The staff is all very snooty and the service is poor overall. The food was pretty good, but the bad service ruined the experience. The staff needs to be warm and welcoming, not act like they wish they didn't have to be there. Even the bartenders talked among themselves only while we had drinks and you had to beg for attention and it wasn't even crowded."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Wanted to try this place but was warned that it was very expensive. Resturant week provided a great opportunity to try. We were not disappointed, food was wonderful and plentiful. The bar and cocktail selection was so fun . We were made to feel so welcome even though it was a " fixed" menu We will be back"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Another restaurant week dinner. The only problem is I can't quiet remember what I had. There were some green mashed potatoes involved that were pretty tasty. And a bread and butter cake was pretty dry. Other than that, the bar was nice. There is an outdoor patio with fire pits. The set up was a bit awkward, there were many people out side that wanted to sit, but there is no seating around the fire pits to enable you to sit outside an enjoy the view at night. a few people were sitting on the floor chatting. The location is great and the vibe is nice for drinks."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We called to tell them we were running a few minutes late due to traffic and construction. The hostess gave us a hard time saying that they would "try" to hold the table. When we arrived there was NO ONE there! Only about 1/4 of the tables were occupied by guests. I ordered the lobster mac and cheese and he ordered the salmon. I was underwhelmed by the mac and cheese. I'm not paying $38 for velveta and fake lobster. The waiter asked my bf what temperature he wanted his salmon. He said MW but salmon was raw. Bf asked if he could just have a burger instead. Manager brought it out. (they still charged us for salmon though). Got the milk and cookie and the cookie was stale and brittle. Bf's Jameson and Ginger Ale and it was $17! This isn't DC!"

  • "Very energetic place! Food and service were great, but my husband and I had trouble hearing each other. It was extremely loud in the restuarant! Great if you want to feel like you're at a hot spot, but not particulary intimate and romantic. But overall, we enjoyed it. Great views and rooftop bar!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I enjoyed every course and plan to return to Fahrenheit in the near future. The food is great and the view is spectacular! I look forward to hanging out at the bar with friends and enjoying the sunset."

  • "Cramped dining room. Servers ran into our tables twice. Food was at best mediocre. It was crowded and we learned it was Queens feast. However not an excuse for average food and service. Best service was busboy."
